Do You Fear Weird Too?

I consider myself pretty weird.  Never really doing the normal things you would expect a child, never-the-less an adult, to do.  Perhaps that is one of the reasons my dad’s nickname for me was Dumb Shit.  (Remember back a few posts – this was not a bad thing, but a very loving way of telling … Continue reading Do You Fear Weird Too?

WERE YOUR FOLKS BRILLIANT?

My last post got me thinking about my parents a lot.  They supported us in so many ways, especially in ways that we never even knew.  The last bit of my last blog talked about why I do not do major alcohol.  This was formed by my parents and a well-played evening on their part. … Continue reading WERE YOUR FOLKS BRILLIANT?

DO YOU HAVE A BLACK MARKET IN YOUR COMMUNITY?

This question came to me under some unusual circumstances. I grew up with depression-era parents.  They did not like to discard anything.  If we did not need it, a family member or friend might; so nothing was thrown away.  Well, in keeping with this family tradition I tried to donate my grandson's car seat to … Continue reading DO YOU HAVE A BLACK MARKET IN YOUR COMMUNITY?
